Medic arrest video highlights need to keep cool heads
Sometimes it may be necessary to withdraw from the intensity of the situation
By Art Hsieh
It's a bit frustrating to watch this clip.
It reinforces that video captures only what's happening at the time of the recording.
It's not clear what happened just prior, nor does it suggest the reason as to why the public safety providers got into a tussle on scene.
Unfortunately many people simply jump to conclusions about where to lay "fault" and blame.
Hopefully there was a simple misunderstanding that got compounded with the pushy back and forth.
However, this episode does remind all of us to keep our cooler heads on when the situation abruptly changes.
Sometimes it may be necessary to withdraw from the intensity of the situation so as to defuse the stress involved.
